All MINI's I have seen on 17" wheels have Pirelli tyres.

Right...just back from the pub, but...
17"'s are £370 more on top of Chili pack.
Yes - the grip is amazing and the look is even better, and yes, if you saw a blue Coop with whites on Monday it must have been mine.
My advice to anyone who's listening - the MINIdisc is FANTASTIC for the money, as are the wheels so buy those too, though I believe replacements to be around the £160 mark!!!
As for trip comp. - don't bother. And to add to the debate, heated seats are VERY warm, but on a cold night they're the bomb!
And Tim - bad news - Shelley's just got engaged (she went to Leventhorpe too!!!)
And Smartbomb - yes, tomorrow is Dukes night, just to gauge the totty reaction in the heart of slapper-dom...if Stortford is anything to go by (ie Herts & Essex at lunch time!), I'm on a promise!!!
Me? At a girls sixth-form at lunch time, in my MINI? With MY reputation? Raaaaather... :eek:

My 17" wheels came with Pirelli tyres. No problems in the wet. The 45 profile does not provide a lot of tyre and I think potholes and kerbs will need to be given a w-i-d-e berth.:)
